On the 21st September at 2:58 am, I was awakened and heard the Lord speak, “Now the Bride will bring to birth the man-child.”
I knew from the way it was spoken that the birth pangs had been going on for some time, but now the baby was going to emerge into full view. Immediately, I was reminded of Revelation 12 and the description of the woman with 12 stars on her head travailing to bring forth the man-child.
Now when the Lord said to me that it is the Bride who will bring forth the man-child, I was aware that until this event, the man-child company had been hidden within the Bridal company, secretly growing and maturing and that the completion of birthing would in effect bring separation and definition of two separate companies. No longer would there be confusion as to the identity of the two companies.
What is also profoundly important is that the man-child’s head emerges into the atmosphere fouled by the breath of the dragon. Immediately upon emerging, the hot sulfurous breath of the dragon is the first breath the man-child is exposed to. That air is filled with cursing and words of death and destruction, which, if allowed to bring forth fruit, would result in the death of the man-child. And then God catches this company up to a seated position at the throne, from which the man-child can view all subsequent events from God’s vantage point.
Once the man-child company is set in place in heavenly places, the Bride then flees to the place prepared for her and remains there under God’s protection for 1260 days. Of course, the dragon wishes to destroy her too with the river of death-words from his mouth, but she is protected and he turns his attention to making war on the remnant seed. These, however, have the testimony of Jesus and the power of the Blood of the Lamb and love not their lives unto death, so the dragon’s war is in vain.
Going by the statement spoken to me in the last minutes of the third watch of the night, it seems evident that we are in the season of the emergence of the man-child company and therefore it is important to be aware that this emergence is not met by a trumpet fanfare, but rather the release of death threats and curses. Just as Herod sought to destroy Jesus by releasing a wide-reaching death decree, so too the enemy desires to wipe out the man-child company as they emerge from the birth canal. The eyes and ears of the man-child are exposed to the onslaught of strong witchcraft and death assignments, even as the shoulders of the man-child are still making their way through the narrow portal into full exposure. The war is on the mind and perhaps there is even the thought of longing for the safety of the womb of preparation as opposed to being birthed into this flaming battlefield. The catching up and setting in place at the throne level then restores peace and rest as things look very different when looking from God’s vantage point. But this only occurs once the man-child has emerged in entirety and so there is a short season of being face to face with the dragon.
On Monday night, I attended a symphony concert to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Feast of Trumpets. As I walked with my friends towards the auditorium, a very smartly dressed young woman approached us and, indicating our shofars, asked if we intended to blow them at the concert. She expressed her excitement at attending and then said she hoped the shofars wouldn’t ‘do something’ to her when they were blown en-masse. She then held out her right arm and showed us two bracelets round her wrists. She was a high-level sangoma or witchdoctor! Then she turned and entered the seating area. It was somewhat of a shock to discover that within the Bridal company crowd, mostly dressed in white, there was a highly trained witch. I immediately knew the Lord had prompted her to reveal herself to us as we could then pray accordingly for any witchcraft to be cut off and rendered null and void and for her to be delivered.
This incident remained with me in the days following and I was aware that the enemy was going to be revealing what was up his sleeve, just as she had done; that the Sovereign Lord was going to be unmasking the hidden sources of witchcraft within the company who called themselves the Bride of Christ. He would be separating light from darkness (or counterfeit light) and labeling each according to its real character. In this way, the true Bridal company would be able to identify the source of the dragon’s breath up close and personal.
Keep your eyes on Him, knowing that you will be lifted out of this death breath atmosphere and set in place in the twinkling of an eye. Never return evil for evil, but on the contrary, blessing, so that you show you are sons of your Father in heaven, who rains on the just and the unjust. Make sure a river of life flows from your lips and do not under any circumstances lend your tongue to contributing to the flood emerging from the dragon’s mouth. Let God deal with those who curse you.
